LICENSE LEVEL 2

Training for getting the license of the second level (LEVEL 2) consists of three weeks.

Obtaining of the second level license (LEVEL 2) gives the licensee the right to teach using mannequin heads.

Each week consists of 5 working days.

The second level license is the next stage of your development as a trainer. During the course you study combinations of fundamental shapes. After learning the Matrix-9 system and mastering the theoretical knowledge you can start to combine shapes and techniques. This will allow you to work with more complex designs, expand your horizons and give you a deeper knowledge of technical skill. The training lasts three weeks, two of them are assigned to practicing on mannequin heads and one is dedicated to training on models. This will allow you to work with different textures and bone structures.

For the practical training you will need the following equipment:

  • mannequin heads
  • scissors
  • a comb for hair cutting
  • a flat brush for styling
  • a hairdryer
  • small hair clips
  • a spray bottle
  • a gown

Week 3 schedule:

The third week is the end of the training Students construct designs models (clients), on the last day an exam is held. The evaluation goes in the following way: the student brings a model, chooses any of the designs learnt during the training and constructs it from the beginning till the end following the timing. During the performace a photographer will work with all the students, and they will be able to use the photos for their portfolio.
